to the most voted on submissions from young people all across the country. so i think president obama is very committed to starting a conversation that will hopefully get our generation educated on the details which are critical about this law. >> you know, jake, before -- you know we don't get into poll numbers about disapproval rates of obama care among younger people. where do you sense this cynicism, this disinterest in anything that government can do or might be able to do for young people comes from? what's the root of it right now? >> i think we don't put too much stock into one poll or another but generally speaking the climate has been very partisan and with the website issues. it feels like the air is clearing more now and generally speaking one thing that we do know from polls is young people aren't educated about this law. it's our position that if we start a conversation and young people learn more what this law means for us and our generation we can have a meaningful conversation about the law that will get our generation engaged and people will be able to make the decision one

't understand why the obama administration would not have encouraged a country developing a new constitution to put in a provision for impeachment. don't know why this administration would not have encouraged that. but it wasn't there. so when president morsi vastly exceeded the authority of the constitution and began moving toward being a monarch, millions of people reported 20, 30, 33 million egyptians rose up. 90 million people in the whole contry. they rose up and demanded that the president be removed. the christian pope in egypt told me personally, he said, this was the will of the people. please tell the administration and people in america this was coup. this was the people of egypt rising up. as he talked about arm in arm the moderate muslims, secularists, christians joined hands, joined arms and protested and demanded that the military remove president morsi. and they did. and as these articles have talked about, the violence in august, the violence in the summer against christian churches, 73 or so burned down, christians killed and tortured, that was by the muslim brotherhood. an
. the youth of this response. this is an incredibly young country where the majority of people have no memory of apartheid. it is something from the history books. it is something that they learn about in school or from their parents, perhaps. but president obama put it incredibly well in that statement earlier. and he used one of nelson mandela's best known phrases when he said i fought against white domination and black domination to say this is not someone who was fighting just against the apartheid regime, but against racism right across the races. he said when he came to power as president in 1994 that he didn't want to push the white man into the sea. and perhaps in part for that reason, that is why he is so adored by people of all races. yes, an icon for black africans, an icon, too, in a different way perhaps for millions of white south africans too. although there is a great deal of criticism the way they've progressed, it is peaceful, it is democratic, and it is stable. and no one in 1994 predicted that. >> all right. well, we're going to have a lot more. thank you, rohit. and we're

of the bbc, i spent a lot of time covering civil wars in africa. i do think, as president obama said, that mandela's personal force of character did make a very significant difference in preventing that country going to civil war. i think one of the things that people forget now about it, which was just so extraordinary at the time was the immense pressure the man was under. i mean he had pressure from the international community to get this right. he also had pressure from his own party because there were many in the a.n.c. who were real hot heads who just wanted an armed struggle, who didn't want to negotiate with the whites. he had pressure from other parties. you remember the zulu leader. he was achieving at the bit. then there were the whites emselves, which were split down the middle between the moderates of declercq and ralph mayer, and the extremists of the a.w.b. he was juggling all these factions, and the fact that he managed to navigate his way through to an incredible outcome of an election, a very peaceful election, and then the transition to black majority rule without

as a young senator for barack obama. the president spoke back fondly on that meeting and said he took so much from mandela. the men have the bond of being the first black presidents of each of their countries. in june i was with the president in africa, he had a long trip. at that time mandela was ill. the speculation was if he would pass during president barack obama 's trip or if obama would meet with him. he decided out of respect for mandela that he would meet with some of his relatives there in south africa rather than meeting directly with mandela ailing back in the early part of the summer. bottom line, president barack obama took his own family to robin island where nelson mandela was in prison for 26 years. there was images of the president bringing his wife and two young daughters to talk to them about the legacy and refler reflect on hit. >> we got a message from george bush. it says barbara and i have had the privilege to know. as president i watched in wonder as mandela had the remarkable capacity to forgive jailers following 26 years of wrongful imprisonment setting redemths an

of the man? what did he mean to his country? >> el with, he -- well he means. i think the challenge is to live up to the example as he set, as president obama indicated. what was great about mandela was his respect for the rule of law. think about it for just a moment. 27 years in jail on an ill legitimate situation, his advisor said no no no you can't do it, you can't appear on this case of rugby and discrimination, a libel set of some sort, it was that stubborn sense of fairness which kept the process on track. and we americans owe him and the country of south africa a great debt. because nothing would have torn this country apart in the 1970s or perhaps in the '80s but a race war in south africa. so all i want to do is celebrate this wonderful, wonderful man. >> i actually want to pick up ou had been appointed by an african american president, you had seen the current day legacy of nelson mandela in south africa. how did it resonate? >> it resonated incredibly --hie country. you know from people on the street to people in government. everyone aspires to live up to the legacy he l
